Do you have mold in your home?
Having mold in your home is not the end of the world, but it could be the end of your health… for a little while. Exposure to damp and moldy environments can cause a variety of health effects:
- Nasal Stuffiness
- Throat Irritation
- Coughing and Wheezing
- Eye Irritation/Skin Irritation
Or you can be perfectly healthy and still have mold in your home.
Midwest and Mold.
Midwest Carpet and Duct Cleaning has found a multitude of houses (old and new) with mold in them in and around St. Louis, Missouri. Especially in areas with older homes like Webster Groves, Missouri and Belleville, Illinois. Alton, where the river is running along the edge and most of the basements are stone, is a huge mold area. We have recently started a mold restoration segment of our company and added a Mold Expert to our team.
Before now, we would find the mold and were able to use negative air equipment to basically “freeze” the spores while we clean. Then we would have another company we worked with come in and do the restoration work. Well, going into 2018 we decided that we wanted to have someone on our crew that is trained to assist in removing the mold right then and there when we find it to give our customers the peace of mind they need.
If you are curious about having mold in your home, we would love to come out and assess your home or workplace. Matt, our expert, can show you where the mold is and how we would go about removing it.
Beware: if you have ever had a flooded basement or water line bust, mold could be lurking in your home. It could be the reason for your child’s asthma or why you have felt so stuffed up with no relief. Let’s get it cleaned!
